Burton Railroad Depot, Museum and Visitors Center and the Mt. Zion Historical Chapel & CemeteryHistory lives thanks to the Burton Heritage Society! Formed in 1973, devoted members maintain and preserve the Burton Railroad Depot and Mt. Zion Historical Chapel. The depot transports visitors to 1870 when Burton was a terminal on the Houston and Texas Central Railroad, while the cemetery honors some of the earliest and more notable inhabitants, such as famous Texas Ranger Leander McNelly. Open the First Saturday during the months of March through December, or by appointment.
